Pet Poison Helpline is a valuable resource during Halloween season.

The Pet Poison Helpline reports that the week of Halloween is their busiest time of the year. Most calls are related to potential poisoning from eating chocolate or raisins; overeating of candies; accidental ingestion of candy wrappers, glow sticks or costume decoration; or burns from candles.

You can help keep your dog safe from accident and injury by keeping candles well out of reach of wagging tails, and keeping candies in closed containers out of reach on counters.

For more information on keeping your dog safe during the Halloween season, please visit Pet Poison Helpline here.
